I was wondering if anyone could give me some info. I am an LPN but haven't worked as one in 4 years and actually I have minimal med/surg experience. Most of my experience is in assisted living.
For the past 4 years I have been working as a certified massage therapist. I love being a massage therapist, I think because I can focus all my energy on one person at a time, unlike a hospital setting. That was just overwhelming to me. Anyway, I would like to get back in to nursing. Hospice nursing really interests me. I think I could incorporate both skills. Finally...my question....
Do they use LPNs for hospice or do you have to be an RN? What kind of refresher courses should I take to be a hospice nurse?
Are there any actual hospice nurse courses? My license is still active but I don't feel confident enough in my skills.
Where do I start? -Thanks!
